Re: What's the story behind your user name?
I showed up at this late-night [jazz] jam session in NYC and it was great. Great players, great atmosphere, and people were there just to listen to the music and everything - I ended up playing basically the whole night because I was the "only" drummer after the house guy got done (one other dude got on the drums, and it was apparent to everyone that we needed to get him off the drums...)
I show up the next week, and this oooooooold black dude (great upright bassist) immediately says "Aaahh! The Colonel's back!" and it's been a nickname of mine since then.
That and I used it when I came back on from getting banned cuz "Erik Lund" seemed a little too sexy/pornographic for a family website.
